Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Senior Lecturer in Sociology in the Department of Social and Policy Sciences. I joined the University of Bath in 2016. I have previously lectured in Sociology at Liverpool Hope University and at the Centre for the Study of Human Rights at the London School of Economics.

My research explores the connections between human rights, transitional justice, and memory. I am increasingly concerned with the intersections of environmental issues with these fields.

My first book, Transitional Justice and Memory in Cambodia (2017), considered the different ways that memory is implicated in the ongoing prosecutions at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal (Routlege, Memory Studies: Global Constellations series). 

I was the Principal Investigator on the AHRC-GCRF Follow on Funding for Impact award "Elephant conservation and indigenous experiences in Cambodia: Shaping environmental awareness through participatory filmmaking with young people". I was also Co-Investigator on the AHRC-GCRF Network Plus Awards "Education Justice and Memory" and "Changing the Story". I was a Co-Investigator on the GW4 Alliance network "Transformative History Education". 

I am currently writing work that explores the opportunities and challenges in the delivery of genocide education, particularly through arts methodologies; the politics of indigineity and its intersections with ecological harms in conflict; network analysis of transitional justice actors and their relationships; a new book that explores the life trajectories and meaning making practices among ex-combatants after Cambodia's civil war; and the prospects of developing variying 'green' agendas for transitional justice research.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

I am available to supervise research projects on human rights, transitional justice, and memory studies. I am especially interested in supervising projects focusing on South East Asia.
